I have been living with the Van der Nent family for one month now. On the first day of this year, when I was only five weeks old, I became a part of their life. At first I was a little nervous, but in a few days I felt I had become a full member of the family. All the attention I got made me prosper. However, although I may look like a full-grown parrot to the inexperienced eye, I am still considered a toddler. I am totally dependent on my human parents and it will be four more years before I am fully mature.
